Looking for a restaurant or venue to have my daughters Bat Mitzvah. 100-120 people. Santa Monica to Woodland Hills. LOW BUDGET. Need room to hold service. Casual, fun and or funky. Room for DJ and dance floor a must. Open for suggestions, time is running out!

  1. please be more specific about what you mean by "low budget."

    the very fact that you plan to have a DJ and a dance floor give us a clue, but it would be so much easier if you were to give us a per person dollar amount

      Depends on what is included in the price per person. We could go as high as $80-$100 per person with bar, apps, salad, main coarse and desert included.

        as you shop, be sure to ask whether or not the "service charge" is actually given to the waitstaff.

        if the answer is "yes" confirm with one of the servers on the day of the event that this is accurate.

        I would second Skirball, and it's a nice space. Now why didn't I think of that.

      2. If you really want low budget try Cafe Bizou in Santa Monica. They have a large private room, and they maybe able to accomodate your needs. Done lots of parties and very reasonable. Call you never know.

        1. Thank you all for your input... Intalking with my husband last night it looks like we will be going with Ca Del Sol on Cahuenga Blvd. Wish me luck!

          1. The 4 Seasons in Westlake does a fabulous job. One niece had hers there and her sister is about to have one there also.
